Sweet corn for canning purposes has been grown commercially in Utah for more than 40 years. For two decades before 1940, the acreage varied between 400 and 800 acres. It increased from 600 acres in 1942 to 6,300 in 1949 and was down to 4,470 acres in 1959. In 1959, there were five counties in Utah where farmers grew more than 100 acres of canning corn. This accounted for 98 percent of all canning corn reported. Of these, Utah County had 2,468 acres or 55 percent of the total, Cache had 1,059 acres or 23 percent, Box Elder had 483 acres or 11 percent, Davis 217 acres or 5 percent, and Salt Lake had 161 acres or 4 percent.
